Must be daft... I like the 80-400 VR :)

400mm, f/9:

400mm, f/9, 90% crop:

230mm, f/8:

While I love the image quality and bokeh of the 300 and 400mm primes, I just don't have the desire to carry tripods around anymore. The 70-300 VR and 80-400 VR are just so much fun and easy to use that I've become spoiled and lazy in my old age!

Both lenses can certainly be nitpicked in terms of performance but it's hard to argue with their versatility and ease of use for the hobbyist who enjoys wandering about the natural world.

Cheers!
